It'll be a rematch of last season's ALDS between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers, only this time the winner moves on to the World Series.

It took the Yankees and Tigers five games to eliminate their opponents and move on to the ALCS, but both teams will come in well matched.

During the regular season, the Tigers and Yankees faced off 10 times, with New York winning the season series 6-4.

Both teams used their aces in the deciding Game 5's of the ALDS rounds against the Oakland A's (Tigers) and Baltimore Orioles (Yankees), leading to a possible must-see Justin Verlander vs. CC Sabathia showdown in Game 4 and perhaps Game 7.

The ALCS will kick off on Saturday at 8:07 p.m. ET.

Read on for an analysis and breakdown of both teams in what should be a hard-fought series.
